  1. Mmm it all looks rather "hand knitted", an amateur enterprise that although prepared with love by a keen fan/fans will most likely be peppered with errors. The design and layout has that unprofessional appearance. Good luck to them
  2. Fascinating article. Ray talks about this period during an early 90s appearance on the Geraldo USTV talk show special "The Women Of Motown" which is posted on YouTube, worth checking out as Mabel John & Kim Weston also appear.
  3. All of the above posts sound really good. It's one of life's great mysteries- what makes a hit a hit? Talent of course should be the most important element- unfortunately we know that is often not the case. Often times the record just taps into the zeitgeist- right place right time. Truth is DJs/playlists, record companies/pluggers, PR departments are the magic formula. I thought I knew most soul/disco/R&B artists- that is until the arrival of the internet- youtube & amazon in particular- not forgetting several other sites including e-bay. My 40+ years of musical education became supe
  4. One of THE most iconic songs of all time yet it failed to hit big in the UK. Dodie West scrapped into the bottom end of the chart and Cilla included in on an album and EP but the awesome original by the sensational Little Anthony did nothing. There is no justice in this world!

Most of her music was a straight rip off of well known Motown hits- almost like the Supremes greatest hits and Ashford & Simpson songbook. Why was she adored by the mainstream music journo's? Because of their ignorance of soul music and the legacy of the various soul labels and iconic perfo
  6. C'mon guys you're sounding like a load of grumpy old gits! If a couple of young kids watching Strictly get to hear some northern sounds for the first time and are excited by it and get hooked then it can only be a good thing. It saddens me to see so much negativity elitism and inverted snobbery. There are many ways for people to discover exiting "new" music and find a tribe they identify with and want to belong to. How else does "new blood" join the "scene"? By invitation only? Like The Masons? Someone born in 2001 can hardly be classed as a "johnny come lately" do they have to apologize for b
